Boston Pops at Symphony Hall is a Christmas Tradition! They have the best rendition of "The Twelve Days of Christmas". They have both children's matinee with Santa and later performances. Though the Christmas Eve performance is the most coveted. They have a wonderful series with guest performers and themed performances (i.e.: baseball night) thru their regular season schedule. (The only downside has nothing to do with the Pops, it's the parking or lack there of, this is Boston and that is always a challenge regardless of any attraction you attend here.)

Being Americans we never miss The Boston Pops. We always went to the Pops since John William was the conductor. The music is wonderful. The Pops made us not being to leave Boston on July 4th.

I performed on the stage of the Boston Symphony Orchestra when I was a teenager and have loved classical music ever since. The Boston Pops are a treasure. It's no surprise that Boston's 4th of July celebration is the one nationally televised every year.

I'm never underwhelmed by the Pops. Keith Lockhart and these volunteers consistently shine as one of the hallmark events of the holiday season. I've been going to concerts at Symphony Hall for a decade or more and have never been disappointed. I've seen the holiday show several times and it is a regular stop for my family and friends when they visit at the holidays. You can really tell how hard this group works. We are blessed to have them in Boston!
